Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Engine crashing when I open a certain folder

I've never had a problem like this before, but whenever I try to open my blueprint folder the engine crashes. And the blueprint folder is the only folder that does that, all of the other ones open just fine.

What should I do?

Visual Studio error message: alt text

This is mostly likely caused by a corrupt blueprint in that folder. Could I see the actual engine crash report, and I might be able to help more.

From the report you might be able to find the blueprint causing the issue. You could use an auto save backup of that blueprint to replace it and that MIGHT work. Or your best bet is to roll back your changes to as time this didn't happen, as you should be using version control like Git. If your not, then this is a good lesson on why you should be. (It's a tough lesson, I have had this happen to me when I first started and lost a lot of work, then I learned about version control and never looked back.)

Thanks for the help! (the crash report didn't have anything useful in it, but I ended up finding the corrupt blueprint)

No problem. Glad you got it fixed!
